Yea, but then you need the 88mph limiter so you don't time travel on the freeway and end up getting to work 3 hours early every day.

LOL!!!!

Wouldn't exactly be a bad thing on those days you're running late though.

Just to clarify and narrow this statement down a bit....

Yes, some supercharged DO use blow off valves, BUT our cars can not.

NO! on roots style superchargers (like on our cars)
NO! on screw type superchargers.
YES! on centrifugal type superchargers where the air is compressed before the throttle body.

They sell those awesome "get that turbo noise" kits on ebay, and you could even hook it up to a signal wire so it can fluctuate with your RPM's very authentic :D lol

About this supercharger/turbo crap. I had a lapse in judgement and went to a ricer tuner shop called &^%$#@@(sorry not getting sued). they told me to drop the supercharger and get myself a turbo(if I wanted real power). WTF I says after my trip back to reality. I thought about it for a hole virgins sex second and said lets see what my s/c does against your eclipse turbo. Ok that damn eclipse was fast but in the end my RL prevaled. Needless to say the "turbo geek" changed his tune on superchargers and said that I should just look for smaller pullies, how 'bout that. Still waiting for the go ahead with those after market parts.........................the saga continues
